    Okay place, but needs work

    I worked at Accretive Health

    Pros

    They have a decent benefit package and it is a steady paycheck. Occasionally offered overtime. I enjoyed those I worked with.

    Cons

    The management team doesn't seem to appreciate their employees and does a lot of micromanaging. The pay is okay, and the only way to move up is to be friends with management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and promote those who have earned it. Take time to have a meeting with the lower level employees without their management so you can get a pulse on what the true issues are.

    Pros

    Easy to balance work/home life. Consistent hours and decent pay for being a call center. Modest attempts at promoting good work culture.

    Cons

    Did not value individuals. Poor middle and upper management. High turnover. Overly focused on metrics instead of a high quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    In order to have a good workforce try offering better wages and benefits to attract a higher quality individual. Would help with performance and turnover.

    Pros

    The Employees such as your team members and team leads also department leads. Love our clients also

    Cons

    System issues are the only thing consistent, bonus structure is based on Tiers Ex,) If you bring in over $100000 you potentially will only receive less than $2000 in commission. Top down company and needs to increase base pay.

    Advice to Management

    Please work not just for your clients but your employees they feel unappreciated and that's very consistent.

    Pros

    Pay is equal or in some cases above the competition. Trying to formally train employees. Great staff at operator levels

    Cons

    Very few operators in middle and upper mgmt have any practical rev cyc experience. Still believe they are the best in the business but are barely average.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to any firm understanding the market that could better utilize some of the developed software and people

    Pros

    Great training program, worked with other college business students, great potential for monthly commission bonuses, good location

    Cons

    Very strict office culture, not much flexibility with schedules once they were set, senior leadership seemed secretive, not much room to move up post college

    Advice to Management

    Management could be much more flexible and laid back, need to create a more relaxed culture to attract younger talent, needs much more transparency to ground-level employees, commission structure could be more fair.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, stable work hours, great work-life balance, great location, amazing location, great coworkers.

    Cons

    HR was very unorganized and their mistakes spilled into other departments. Upper management was very disconnected from the staff. Little recognition for employees who put in the extra work. Mostly lateral movement through the company with very few chances for a raise/promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Find some stability.

    HR needs to hire more qualified support members. Incentives for work being done passed quota.
